Aubrey – I have two 31 Utility Totes, two bags from Amazon and one from Walmart. The bags from Amazon are cheaper than 31 bags but are every bit as good in terms of quality. Further, the Walmart bag cost the least but, in my opinion, is the best bag. The only downside is there aren’t many fabric choices. Also, I had another 31 bag that I bought as a work bag, it was expensive and it fell apart. I do like the 31 bags (I think the fabric is pretty) but I would rather save money. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41duKeBi%2BSL._SL500_SS500_.jpg
I am very pleased with the studio thirty-one clutch! This particular one is a Hostess Exclusive- but the classic and modern body style studio 31 purses can be purchased by anyone and are the same concept. Option of length, texture, & color of your purse strap, the flap, and body style lets you be your own designer! The quality is comparable to that of a coach or vera bradely yet not as large of a price tag. I personally prefer the simple yet classic elegance of a script or swirl monogram embroidery. I would absolutely reccomend to family & friends!
I came across your article today and I would like to know if you personlly have used both versions, the cheap and Thirty One? I’ve been with the company 6 years now and have to say every penny I’ve spent has been worth it. I still have the first two Large a Utility Totes I bought 6 years ago and use them. Just because it’s cheaper that doesn’t mean it is better. Thirty Ones products actually hold up pretty well. I admit like any other company we do have some problems from time to time but they are good at helping customers fix these issues. You have a 90 day warrrenty and sometimes even after that they help. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Q_JoX5lteKU/TuEoID_mDvI/AAAAAAAAC0U/MMY6XLAW4Dg/s400/Essie+nail+color.png
I just bought a few new things from Thirty-One, and so far am very pleased with my purchases! The first thing I bought was a medium tote. It is well made, has a gorgeous pattern, and works great for holding sweaters in my closet! It can also hold a LOT of stuff if you needed to transport snacks, craft supplies, etc! The second thing I bought was the Thermal Tote in the cute Forest Friends pattern! I was a little worried this would be a little too small to fit a lot in it, but it has a ton of room to bring my lunch to work! I love it and it is so cute! I definitely recommend their products. Some of the totes can get a little expensive but sometimes they have sales or deals!

I actually use this tote as a diaper bag, I have two children in diapers and it really works great for that. Aside from the way I use it, I think it's an over all great bag. A few issues: the elastic pockets on the sides seem to have lost their tension already, I don't put anything large or heavy in them to cause this, also the pocket in the back.. Wish it was larger, I don't really see the point of the zipper in the bottom of the pocket. The only other issue I have is the straps, wish they had some sort of padding on them, they tend to be a little hard on your hands if you're carrying anything heavy.
I have 4 products that I have used intermittently. By no means were they used every day and by no means were they harshly used. One product was barely used. I now have 2 out of 4 products that are failing. The inside plasticy lining of my very small utility bag is cracking and disintegrating. Obviously a poor plastic material that does not hold up. Which is fine, then don't charge me a fortune if it is going to fall apart. I have an organizing tote with zipper, hardly used. Used it the most for one week at the beach. The entire seam has separated leaving a gapping hole in the bottom. The bag is useless now. Contacted customer service and was told only 90 days. Your products should be expected to hold up more than 90 days, especially for the price. Will not buy again. I have had LLBEAN and Lands End bags warrantied FOREVER and I have used Vera Bradley purses and bags, every single day for years with only wearing of the material noticed on the handle. Mind you, I said "wearing down" not completely falling apart or broken! This company is a cheap, trendy home party that makes very poor quality products that are sold at high prices so all the people in the chain can get their profit. Tupperware has full lifetime replacement for free!!!
